Certain areas of collecting are often hard to understand. Black memorabilia is collected for many different reasons by people of all races and nationalities. Not all Black Americana collections have a negative connotation nor are they amassed due to bigotry. Many uplifting aspects of African-American culture can also be incorporated into a collection. Black Americana consistently falls into one of these difficult to fathom categories, especially when dealing with items produced from the '20s through the '50s which consistently stereotyped African-Americans. The derogatory nature of these items reflects a very different time in American history when it was acceptable to have black stereotypes not only in the home, but everywhere.
I personally, love to collect, and create my own Black Americana goods.
That nasty 4 letter word *SNOW* has been mentioned to many times during the past several news broadcasts....seems to be a good time to meander in my clutter and conjure up some more holiday wares.
Nearly 20 humans coming for the big Turkey feast this week, I feel the need to hire a maid and cook (oh wait, mother is hosting the feast, so scratch that request! xoxo
